With Bundesliga POTM dropping next Friday 15th looks all set to be Brandt, Orban or Bellarabi being the latest POTM giving an alternative on this award.

Now of course while Brandt may be the likely card to win it, don’t necessarily think like this though as Orban and Bellarabi have solid shouts too so best to be prepared for all outlets as a plan b.

So for Brandt got to factor in he plays for Leverkusen and Germany so investing in 82+ Leverkusen cards like Tah, Hradecky, Bailey, Brandt, Bender is where to go but also looking at Havertz is an option while him & Bellarabi have special cards we’d imagine due to their prices won’t be required.

For Germany looking at a base version of Brandt wouldn’t hurt due to rating and nationality incase of a Germany SBC Route, but if Leverkusen players are needed he has room to increase. While Fahrmann, Baumann, Tah, Sule, Draxler, Werner, Khedira, Gundogan, Leno are all smart shouts to consider for German players at the higher extreme is Ozil and in slightly lower rated as in 82s is Kruse, Gotze, Mustafi, Bender and Gnabry are others to consider. As with Sancho’s POTM German IFs went through the roof so keeping these in mind is an option too. Cards like SIF Korber, Terodde& Selke ¬†are under 20k, our reason for these 3 are as Korber & Terodde are cheapest 81 rated German IFs outwith the Bundesliga & Selke is the cheapest German Bundesliga IF. Having an IF Brandt at 28k too would not hurt as could prove useful and has room to increase if needed.

In terms of other IFs to focus on Grifo, SIF Sancho for 13k & 15k are worth looking at with Guerriero at 18k & Rebic for 21k others to keep in mind too.

With the Bundesliga in general all 83+ should be considered from Sommer, Kramaric, Hazard, Tolisso, Witsel while at a worst resort your 84 rated FUT Swap cards of Guilavogui, Alcacer, Da Costa & Zuber may suddenly be what you could submit too into this if really have to but we wouldn’t recommend it.

While for Bellarabi and Orban we’d look at Hungary and Leipzig players too so you’d factor in Szalai Gulacsi, IF Orban from a Hungary view while Kampl, Forsberg, Sabitzer, Werner are the focus for Leipzig.

While always being prepared for a rated route too never hurts looking at the options preparing a minimum 85 rated route would be smart but don’t be surprised if it’s 86 rated. So cards like Paulinho, Brahimi, Ibra, Falcao, Dzeko, Ribery, Robben will prove popular.

Finally preparing for the teams they faced in Leverkusen’s case is Bayern, Mainz, Dusseldorf and Dortmund we’d prepare ourselves with Stoger, Ayhan, Gbamin, Adler, Toprak, Tolisso, Coman, Gotze, Sule to name a few.

Leipzig played Hoffenheim, Frankfurt, Stuttgart & Hannover, so Muller, Fullkrug, Anton, Baumann, Demirbay, Jovic, Rebic, Zieler, Gomez.

All in all POTM for Bundesliga should be interesting most fans seem set to vote Brandt while we’d assume the experts will do him too.

So in conclusion Brandt’s POTM should cost between 150-200k going on the basis of his IF costing generally around 27-30k. With around 80-120k worth of packs to support him in terms of making the total spend not a total drain. Bellarabi will probably cost around the same and finally Orban possibly 80-120k depending on stats. All 3 would be 87 rated so may find they are appealing cards for Bundesliga fans but for those looking for cards that are difference makers they may not be.
